A good possibility is the control panel on the driver's door for the power windows and locks. This is called a modual and they are known to corrode inside sometimes due to water that may drip in when the driver's window is cracked open and it's raining out, or snow melting. They are also known to defect after some time too. To see if this is the problem, remove the "modual" from the door panel and unplug the electrical harness from the modual. If the power locks stop cycling, you will have to get a replacement modual from your local GM dealership or possibly your local parts store like NAPA and such fourth. In the mean time, remove fuse number 14 from the fuse box located underneath the hood in the engine compartment on the driver's side behind the windshield washer fluid tank. the fuse is for all the powerlock motors in the vehicle. This will stop the motors from continuing runnig and draining your battery.

Sounds like a wiring/switch issue. I would have your dealer take a look at it to see if there are any problems with any of the switches, or the wiring.
